Alex de Minaur dominates Grigor Dimitrov to advance to Rotterdam Open final

And the beautiful tennis of Grigor Dimitrov was shattered by the flawless efficiency of that of Alex de Minaur. Picked cold and broken from the start, the Bulgarian was never able to find a weak point in his opponent’s armor.

Very effective throughout the match, the Australian almost never made a bad choice. Dimitrov’s slice did not bother him, he was never caught in his movements (his great strength) and his shots had a depth which stifled the recent finalist of the Open 13 in Marseille.

Faced with an unshakable wall, Dimitrov ended up cracking, multiplying unusual errors, such as this backhand into the net which offered his opponent a match point, followed by a forehand in the corridor synonymous with defeat (6-4, 6-3) this Saturday.

A statistic illustrates this match, ultimately one-sided. De Minaur and Dimitrov each got three break points. The Australian converted them all, while the Bulgarian was unable to do anything with his. Qualified for his first final in Rotterdam, Alex de Minaur will face the winner of the match between Jannik Sinner and Tallon Griekspoor.
